Coronavirus COVID-19: Town Hall Square parking updates
Due to the COVID-19 walk-in test centre in the car park, you can not use the electric car charging spaces and we've had to reduce the capacity for parking.
We'll continue to monitor the situation closely, carefully and frequently and will update this website if anything changes.
The Town Hall Square Car Park will close on 1 January 2021 so we can renovate Rochdale Town Hall. We expect the car park to reopen in 2023.
